. the president's favorable rating meantime remains above the crucial 50% mark at 52%. mr. romney is close but still in negative territory at 49%. he enjoys an edge on handling the deficit and joblessness, but trails on virtually every other big issue, including medicare, taxes and foreign policy. keeping them honest, when it comes to some of those issues, both candidates have come up short either on specifics or credibility. issues like cutting taxes without ballooning the deficit or burdening the middle class. the romney campaign has been asked again and again for specifics. here's runningmate paul ryan just yesterday on fox news. >> there's been a traditional democrat and republican consensus lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base works. and you can -- >> i have to -- you haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't have -- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. >> chris wallace kept trying but came away empty-handed. he's not the only one. take a look. >> which of the deductions are you going to be willing to eliminate? which of the tax credits are you going to

on the two campaigns' ongoing debate preps. here is what they they said about romney's prep. quote, mr. romney's team has clon included that the debates are about creating moments and has eye quipped had i am with a series of zingers he's memorized and has been practicing on aides since august. bob shrum, you have been on that particular role, preparing candidates for debate. what do you make of romney, a rather stiff customer to begin with, coming off as sort of a henne youngman or whatever, some sort of a don rickels with some zingers. i don't think of him as a zinger kind of guy which obama is expected to be left helpless. what do you make of that strategy? >> first of all, if you had it, you wouldn't announce it. it's kind of stupid. >> why are they leaking it? >> i don't know. because they're trying to hold onto their people, they're undisciplined, i have no idea. number two, zingers don't exist in a vacuum. it's not just coming up with some funny lines. they have to be part of the fabric of the argument and part of the fabric of who the person is. when ronald reagan said there yo

need to listen to rush limbaugh and maybe you need to really listen to what mr. romney said about this economy. if you are concerned about poverty, do you know that the number one group trapped in poverty is single female households? you need to look at stuff that the conservatives are saying because they care about the poor. they don't want people trapped in poverty. they don't want small businesses, which employs 60- 70% of the citizens in this country, taxed more. if you tax small business, they are not going to hire. don'tt know how you figure out what mr. romney so eloquently said in that debate. talking about politics of the 1% or the 47%, conservatives want the best for all folks, and yes, we mean we don't want them trapped in poverty. we want them married, paying their taxes -- host: we will get katrina vanden heuvel's response. guest: yeah. listen, if marriage will promote the well-being of the couple, children, great. but in my mind, it is and not just that. that is too simplistic. it is part of the equation. without good jobs, without ensuring that workers have rights a
. >> it was determined by a toss of the coin that mr. romney would pose the first question to senator kennedy. >> my impression has been you have followed a campaign as soon as the primary was over of trying to divert the voter's attention from the issues at hand and instead making personal attacks on me as unfounded. they are characterized as untrue, unfair, and sleazy. 12 are women in my firm. you are wrong. he said we would give no benefits to americans. we have 40,000 employees in firms i am associated with to give health-care benefits appeared only part-time do not have health care benefits. that happens to be the same -- the same as your firm. a strike as you criticize me for. you know they were strikers of a company we were not investigated in -- invested in perry purveyed that -- you parade that are around as if it is my problem. i am a fan of the minimum wage. when will this end?

[laughter] i think that will come across, and all of the efforts to bring up the money and the house and the horse and all of that stuff, i don't think americans care if it comes across one on one how much money. nelson rockefeller won in new york again and again and again and again and again, and his fortune dwarf that. there are a lot of rich democrats that this issue doesn't come up. kerry did not lose because he married the heinz fortune. he lost because he was not particularly approachable. [laughter] i think that what you're concerned about is right to be concern the about, but i think as people get to know the governor, and especially the governor in the context of the family, they will believe he is, in fact, sharing their values. if not their pain of financial necessary sigh, their values. i'm confident about that actually. yes, sir? >> thank you
